Once again, children are introduced math in a very concrete way. Before the symbol, the child experiences the quantity. Next the lessons attach the quantity to the symbol and throughout all of the operations of math, with any number children are always presented with the corresponding physical representation of the quantity. With the golden beads, children physically build numbers. Once numbers can be built, they can then be added to, multiplied, subtracted from or divided. In this manner, the children develop a strong foundation in mathematics.
